randoms, lately (july edition)

July 26, 2011

. . . . . . . . .

holy shit you guys, the sun came out in london on sunday. it was warm & sunny and the all that vitamin D went straight to my head. waking up to blue skies & sun sort of felt like finding the hope diamond in my desk drawer.
i took full advantage of it.

. . .

lately, i’m making plans for projects and plans for travel, i’m trying to get more sleep, i’m eating BLTs on sourdough, i’m roasting tomatoes, i’m listening to doug paisley’s album “constant companion” on repeat (especially this duet w/ feist), i saw this photography exhibit and was so inspired, i’m drinking cold white wine despite the cool weather, and i’m reading a very good book.

have a good day.

    i had to tell you…i scrolled down to see your photo of the watermelon slices and literally smelled fresh watermelon at the sight of it. i love your photography.

    I am laughing at your first statement. I was the same the other day when it poured.

    that’s a really great album. i saw him play in cambridge last month and even though there were only six of us in the crowd, he couldn’t have been nicer.

    glad to have found your blog and hope you get a little more sun this week.

    I arrived in the UK on Saturday for a visit with my beau and I promised I would bring the sunshine with me from Atlanta – so far I am true to my word. Not sure how long I can keep the sun shining (it is hard work you know!) but I’ll do what I can :-)

    It all sounds so lovely.

    Wow, your photography is amazing. The watermelon looks so delicious, I could have literally eaten it!
    Oh, and the colours in the first photo, are so devine!

    I’m constantly looking for good books, and There But For The sounds like it might be next on my list! Thanks for sharing it and your beautiful photos!

    Lovely produce, beautiful gardens, and your exuberance. It’s contagious, I think. And I know what you mean…in reverse. After months of blistering sun and drought, we finally are having daily rain and sky with clouds. It is beyond lovely. Thought about parking the car and walking in the rain, but because of my age, I feared someone would report “an old gal lost and wandering about in the weather,” so I just drove with the window down. Enjoy the weather, whatever it is, while it lasts. Your posts do brighten the day.

    such a beautiful collection of images/London looks so green through this looking glass.

    Your pictures make me look forward to my first visit ever to London this coming October!
    (hope the city is recovered from the riot by then…)
